Volunteer With Our Programming

 

With the right skills, eating healthy can be affordable and delicious. Share your skills and your strength with families living on tight budgets.

Culinary Instructors

Teach adults, kids, and teens how to cook and shop for healthy, low-cost foods. They combine their own knowledge and experience with the lesson plans and recipes provided in the Cooking Matters curricula. Culinary volunteers are usually either graduates of or enrolled in a two-year culinary training program or have at least two years working as a cook or chef. To get started volunteering, attend a New Volunteer Training.

Nutrition Instructors 

Teach adults, kids, and teens how to make healthy choices. They use the lesson plans and instructional materials provided in the Cooking Matters curricula, along with their own expertise. Nutrition volunteers are typically graduates of or enrolled in dietetics programs or have at least two years working in a nutrition or dietetics position. To get started volunteering, attend a New Volunteer Training.

Duties may include shopping for food, handing out and collecting class materials, engaging reluctant participants, helping with set up and clean up, or taking photos during class to help record the Cooking Matters course experience.
